“FirstRand Bank has made use of GEC Risk Advisory Services several times since it was formed. As a multi-brand banking group with an international profile we value the combination of an informed global focus in matters relating to risk management and governance, and very professional personal service. Getting advice that is large company appropriate but with small company attention to detail are important differentiators that sets GEC apart from many competitors.”
– Willem J. Punt
Group Ethics And Conduct Risk Officer, Regulatory Risk Management FirstRand Bank, Johannesburg, South Africa

EXECUTIVES


tstlogo_loreal“I met Andrea Bonime-Blanc and Jacqueline E. Brevard in 2004 when I started to work in the ethics field. Their deep knowledge and generosity helped me understand complex issues. Their willingness to share solutions has been tremendously important in my early years in ethics and I now realize how insightful they were. GEC Risk Advisory is to be seriously considered if you are looking for seasoned advice.”
– Emmanuel Lulin
Senior Vice President & Chief Ethics Officer, L’Oreal, Paris, France

INVESTORS & ADVISORS

“Andrea Bonime-Blanc brings a brand and fresh new thinking and advisory approach to the much debated issue of “corporate responsibility”. Having learnt it the hard way as a senior executive at several global companies for two decades, she has come to a quintessential point helping other companies do it. We are talking about a holistic and strategic approach to “corporate responsibility, risk & reputation”, not just “corporate social responsibility” which in isolation is often a hide-all blanket for corporate non-responsibility”.
– José A. Herce
Partner, AFI Economic Consultancy,
Associate Professor of Economics at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, Spain
